LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Friday at 11 a.m., UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois introduced Marcus Arroyo, the new head coach of UNLV’s football program, to the Las Vegas valley.
Before coming to UNLV, Arroyo, 39, had been with Oregon for three seasons. He has been both the quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach with the Ducks. Oregon won the Pac-12 championship and will meet Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
UNLV Athletics says Arroyo is a strong recruiter, and was instrumental in bringing talent into the Ducks’ program. Oregon’s offense is ranked 15th in the nation in scoring this season.
Arroyo is now the 12th head football coach in UNLV’s history.
